Colour : Golden yellow.
Nose : Rich, concentrated. The medicinal (ointment), camphoric, powdery (rice), floral (broom, mimosa), syrupy (cane sugar) and vanilla first nose is incredibly complex. Allowed to breathe, subtle fragrances of wild geranium, lime blossom and flambéed banana bring even more nobility to the aroma palette. Very expressive, with time it brings to mind a field of sugarcane.
Palate : Lively, distinguished. Picking up the tasting where the nose left off, the attack releases absolutely delicious fresh cane juice onto the palate. Lemon, vanilla and resinous flavours liven up yet also soften the mid-palate. The exotic end of the palate (roasted pineapple, flambéed banana) is also spicy (ginger, cinnamon) and vegetal (sugar cane).
Finish : Long, silky. With a very delicate texture, the start of the finish pours rose petals onto the palate. The oriental end of the finish (Turkish delight) develops a more bakery-like register (tarte tropézienne). The refined retro-nasal olfaction is at once praline, finely woody, vanilla, vegetal (tobacco) and roasted (coffee). The empty glass returns in force to the medicinal notes of the first nose.
